Australia is a bucket list adventure for many travelers. It’s easy to push down the list, however, especially for Americans who have destinations in mind that aren’t half the globe away. But we say it’s time to stop delaying and start making plans to visit one of the world’s most spectacular countries.

March is an excellent time to visit Australia as it falls at the beginning of the country’s autumn season. The weather is warm and perfect for outdoor activities, and the flowers are still in full bloom, making it a delightful time to visit. Additionally, March is the ideal time to escape the cold winter weather in the Northern Hemisphere and bask in the warm sun in Australia.

Travelers will be welcomed by some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, exotic wildlife, and vibrant culture. Two Australian locales merited mention in the 2023 edition of the New York Times’s “52 Places To Go” list: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, famed for its imposing 1,142-foot sandstone monolith, and Kangaroo Island, an ecological haven near Adelaide that hosts a wildlife rescue center and conservation park.

Australia is known for its vibrant culture and celebration of life, and March is no exception. Some of the most popular festivals and events that take place in March include:

One decision travelers to Australia must make is which part of the country to see. Australia is so large and diverse that it’s impossible to take it all in during one visit. We think one of three cities should be your destination, depending on what kind of trip you envision.

Sydney is Australia’s largest city and is known for its iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge. It’s a bustling metropolis that offers a range of activities, including shopping, dining, and nightlife, and is a great place to become acquainted with all things Australian. We recommend staying at the Park Hyatt Sydney, a luxurious hotel with panoramic views of the harbor.

Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital and is known for its rich arts scene, including theater, music, and dance. It’s also a food lover’s paradise, with a range of international cuisine options.
Stay at the InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto. This elegant hotel with a gothic Venetian façade is the heart of Melbourne and offers stunning views of the city’s skyline.

Brisbane is Australia’s third-largest city and is known for its subtropical climate and will delight the outdoor enthusiast with ample opportunities for hiking, kayaking, and fishing. The Emporium Hotel South Bank has quickly achieved iconic status in town for its contemporary architecture and five-star service.
